Apsara Dancing Stones
October 27, 2012
Come celebrate 25 years of Angkor Dance Troupe.
The Angkor Dance Troupe presents the premiere of Apsara Dancing Stones, a contemporary dance drama that embodies the beauty and culture of Cambodia. With Eastern and Western influences, this visual narrative combines an unparalleled performance of dance and music from modern and classical Cambodian styles.
Through the eyes of the Khmer deity Apsara, the story unfolds with the birth of Cambodia's golden era of Gods and Goddesses and then moves into the dark age of war and destruction. The story concludes with the rebirth of Khmer culture and the reaffirmation of the Apsara's power as a symbol of peace, reverence and unity.
